Parade mini Roses

Richmond, TX(Zone 9a)

I did a half-hearted search on Dave's and found nothing on this brand of roses. My sweetest hubby found two at the grocery store and bought them for me (one red, one yellow). They just said Parade brand, no name. Something in the tag said Canada, so I guess that's where they are coming from.

They are both repotted and outside. The red one didn't skip a beat, but the yellow one had instant leaf loss. However, new ones are appearing. So far they are withstanding our brutal August.

Anyone familiar with these? The blooms on the red are small, typical mini. The blooms on the yellow are the size of a 50 cent coin. Ah yes, they both had 10-12 blooms when he brought them home.

well, I found this by doing a regular google.

as "florist" type roses, I'm now doubting these will last long. Oh, well, we shall see..

nery, i think that might be like the Patiohit roses i got at the grocery store. zuzu nailed them as being Poulsen Roses. mine are from Canada too. i seem to recall the name Parade on their website too. Aldershot Greenhouses is the distributor in this area, maybe your area too.

Debi, are your indoors or out? how are they doing?

outside. one in the ground all summer and doing fabulous, never "bloomless". the other two are potted and since i bought them in the heat of july/august, they are staying in a semi-shaded spot for a little while longer. when the new beds are done this fall they will go in the ground.

isn't this pitiful? THe yellow didn't last long at all but it has a couple of new healthy branches so I'm not discarding just yet.

The red one is doing fine.

off topic but, doesn't he look guilty as heck? I think he's been digging and I just haven't found the damage, lol

Busted! That's a priceless expression on his face. What a gorgeous hibiscus. Can we see more of it?

oh and he does look guilty, of what we may never know! LOL

oh zuzu, went out to take a pic just for you but all blooms were spent. I will it at the first opp. This hib. Orange Key, a double orange, tough as nails and prolific bloomer. I have rooted a couple of cuttings and will be planting in my orange/melon yadda yadda bed.

When my daughters got married I used some little miniature roses on the tables/decorations and they came from a nursery in Canada called Burnaby Lake and Roselaine here recognized the nursery. I noticed that there were four cuttings in each little 4 inch pot. I split them up and repotted them. I have 4 oranges that are doing great. They bloom and bloom. I bought the girls each the same kind of rose for Easter and I still have them going outside.
I do see a little more diseases in them than the reg.minis.

What an adorable little puppy/dog? What kind? It has the nose of a dachshund.

Lenjo, mixed breed but mini doxie features are dominant. The only exception being his legs, they seem a little too long for a winnie dog. I got him at a doxie rescue place.

I love this little dog and he is the boss of me. Puddy is between 1 and 1 1/2 yr old. The Mgr of the rescue place from where I got him told me that the local pound begged her to take him, even though she had absolutely no room for another dog. He was getting really close to being euthanized and I guess the pound thought he was too cute for such a tragic fate.

I look at my little mutt daily and wonder who in the world needed to get rid of such an adorable creature. oh well, it was definitely my gain. He is in perfect health, has a kind and playful disposition, although he can get on a rampage and bark endlessly. I go to investigate to make sure there are no intruders or danger, only to find him looking up at the ski, barking for absolutely no reason! kinda like he's "practicing" barking so he doesn't forget how, lol.

you're a good and kind person, nery.

I can really understand your attachment to your little dog; my daughter's little pug has just wiggled a special in my heart. And we have had dogs here on the farm for over 30 years but there is something about that little pug; she is totally black too. I hope she eventually has a litter of pups because my DH and I would take one.

zuzu, I asked my hibbie to pose real pretty so I could take a pic for you. She complied
